Halle and her sister Chloe rose to stardom after being discovered by Beyonce on YouTube, who then sealed them up to her Parkwood Entertainment record label for a whopping $1 million.
As regarding Halle’s Disney deal, one Twitter user had some fun trying to perceive how things might have gone down if Jay-Z's wife did use her reputation to allow her underling to shine on one of the most significant film projects in the coming years.
‘Beyonce @ Disney HQ: now before i sign on for nala i want y’all to take a look at my recommendations for the rest of your lil movies,’ she wrote. ‘the parkwood-disney industrial complex is in full swing. get on board or get left behind’, she wrote.
Director Rob Marshall spent the past couple of months witnessing and analyzing potential stars, but insiders report Halle had been a front runner from the beginning. Rob said Halle possesses a rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play the iconic role.
Little Mermaid modern adaptation will be Halle’s feature film debut, and will presumably be the start of even better things for Chloe X Halle house.
